A group of nurses put on an impromptu concert for their patient who was forced to miss the Backstreet Boys’ show after a cancer diagnosis.
Amanda Coley, 36, was looking forward to attending the Aug. 21 concert with her sister, Maggie Mayes Kingston, in their home state of Georgia. But two weeks beforehand, the mom of four learned she had leukemia. Knowing Coley would miss the concert, Kingston planned to hold a Backstreet Boys party in her room at Northside Hospital in Atlanta. About a dozen staff members accepted the invitation and surprised Coley by singing along to hits like "I Want It That Way" and "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)." Kingston tweeted a video of the nurses singing to her sister and one band member, Nick Carter, shared the footage, writing, “We missed you last night Amanda! Looks (and sounds) like you have a great team helping you get better. We’re thinking of you and sending you love." Coley told “GMA” that the impromptu concert, “really lifted my spirits.”
